The Project Brief
Construction supervisors spend a significant amount of time setting up milestones (a project phase with a date) in cmBuilder's siteplan (simulation program) in accordance to their project schedule. The current design was very tedious and time consuming as users had to individually create milestones. As a result, this hindered potential customers from purchasing a subscription plan. My challenge was to streamline the process so that milestones are created automatically according to the user's project schedule. This is so that users can create site simulations faster and win construction bids.
Our team at CadMakers came up with an import tool that would allow users to import their project schedule and create milestones. Users could swap between multiple schedules and update them as needed. There were several versions that would evolve the schedule importer from a minimum viable product (MVP) stage to a mature feature. The designs below are some examples of the third version of the import schedule.
